2015 TLX V6 AWD brake upgrades

Hey all, my brakes are due for new pads and of course the rotors need to be turned.
On my 04 TL I upgraded to Brembo pads and rotors and they made a discernable difference in stopping ability. Alas, they are not available for the TLX.
Anyone have any recommendations for a solid combo?
TIA.

I don't know about you but the 2019 brake pads are awesome. It got this good squeeze to it and very reassuring. I want to buy that brake pads outside of the dealer when it's time to replace it. Does anybody know what brand? Sorry to hijacked your thread.

So I found Wilwood makes a caliper, rotor, and pad set replacement. it's just under 500 bucks for the front brakes, but still being under warranty, I don't know if I want to replace calipers just yet.

I found an EBC kit, but am not familliar with their quality, they are about $350 for pads and rotors that are slotted and just have a cross divot as opposed to an actual hole. I mean the looks would be nice, but I don't know if it's necessary, my Brembos were plain and they crushed.

Kinda surprised no one else has attempted an upgrade yet?

I definitely want to upgrade my brakes when it’s time. Mines a 2018 and the brakes are a bit soft. While I’m at it, I’m gonna get red calipers.

Can't for the life of me find the thread, but somebody had said that they bought https://www.carid.com/powerstop/1-cl...pn-kc7214.html and were very happy with them.

Looks like it's a rotor/caliper/pad combo. The calipers are red, powder-coated, and look nice.

I'll see if I can find the thread... could have been a bot, but it seemed legit!
